One aspect of community life can draw everyone together, regardless of age, income, or background: arts and culture. Where creativity thrives, people have an open invitation to participate and nurture their souls.
Arts organizations, historical societies, museums, and libraries all offer ways for people to tap into a wealth of knowledge and cultural inspiration. Anyone can join in. Performers, writers, and other types of artists benefit – as do appreciative viewers, readers, listeners, and learners.
Funding for arts and humanities can be scarce in many Corning communities. This heightens the Foundation’s focus on this area and its dedication to enhancing diverse cultural opportunities for the future.
